Katy Tiz Signs With Atlantic Records, Scores Radio Hit With Rock Mafia Cover “The Big Bang”

4ae34aadce8c5a57d046d3c9510953bf Katy Tiz Signs With Atlantic Records, Scores Radio Hit With Rock Mafia Cover “The Big Bang”

The Atlantic Records register gets a little more fabulous with each passing day. Romanian dance diva Inna signed to the label recently and today (April 24), British babe Katy Tiz followed suit. Her new single “The Big Bang”, a cover of a relatively obscure Rock Mafia song with a very famous video (more about that later), is exploding at pop radio and making inroads on the iTunes download chart.

The London-based songbird first made waves in late 2012 with feisty debut single “Famous” before returning in 2013 with RedOne-produced party anthem “Red Cup”. Neither track really connected but it’s a case of third time lucky with “The Big Bang”. Interestingly, the original version of the song is well known to Smilers. The video starred Miley Cyrus and features on the soundtrack to her awesomely bad movie LOL. Listen to Katy’s catchy interpretation after the jump.

Do you love Katy’s cover? Let us know in the comments below.

Miley Cyrus Has Been Released From Hospital, Will Resume ‘Bangerz’ Tour In Europe

eda97c49110c3f90914df7e3b09f593e Miley Cyrus Has Been Released From Hospital, Will Resume ‘Bangerz’ Tour In Europe

Miley Cyrus has been released from hospital. The “We Can’t Stop” diva has been bedridden since April 16 when she suffered a severe allergic reaction to sinus infection medication. As a result of the illness, the 21-year-old was forced to cancel the remainder of her US Bangerz tour dates. Those dates have been now been moved to August.

It looks like the hitmaker’s international fans won’t suffer a similar inconvenience. The singer has confirmed that she will commence the European leg of her tour on May 2 as planned. The fact that the first show is in Amsterdam (where her favorite herb is legal) is a happy coincidence. Welcome back, Miley! The internet has been boring without you.

Should Miley take a longer break? Have your say in the comments below.

Lorde Unveils Her MAC Cosmetics Campaign: See The ‘Pure Heroine’ Lipstick Poster

adddf8b2b92849b5d3b5f13f278c34ba Lorde Unveils Her MAC Cosmetics Campaign: See The ‘Pure Heroine’ Lipstick Poster

Lorde isn’t the first diva that springs to mind when you think of make-up, which is probably why her association with MAC works so well. The Kiwi diva unveiled the first taste of her campaign with the cosmetics giant and she looks genuinely stunning with her long flowing locks and trademark scowl.

The 17-year-old’s dark plum lipstick is called ‘Pure Heroine’ after her similarly-titled debut LP and retails for the bargain price of $16. It speaks volumes for Lorde’s standing and popularity that she can juggle this kind of endorsement with being a relatively tortured artist. So, what are you waiting for fashion-forward ladies (and gents)? See the full poster after the jump.

Michael Jackson’s Surprisingly Brief ‘Xscape’ Tracklist Has Been Announced

26105d59a4710179ef1f6bb23a28b150 Michael Jackson’s Surprisingly Brief ‘Xscape’ Tracklist Has Been Announced

Michael Jackson‘s second posthumous release Xscape finally has an official tracklist. And it’s surprisingly brief. The album (out May 13) only contains eight songs but the deluxe edition is rumored to include a bonus disc with MJ’s original demos. Two as-yet unspecified video clips will also be available to download from iTunes.

The collection is a little underwhelming given that much of the album has already leaked in one form or another. “Chicago” (also known as “She Was Loving Me”) has been online for a couple of years, while anti-child abuse anthem “Do You Know Where Your Children Are” has been around for almost as long. Timbaland-produced “Slave To The Rhythm” made the cut, as did the recently leaked title track. See the official standard tracklist after the jump.

Michael Jackson’s Xscape tracklist:

1. Love Never Felt So Good
2. Chicago
3. Loving You
4. A Place With No Name
5. Slave To The Rhythm
6. Do You Know Where Your Children Are
7. Blue Gangsta
8. Xscape

Are you happy with the tracklist? Let us know in the comments below.

Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts” Premieres On VEVO: The 10 Most Heartbreaking Moments

3f330ccbde6d2c1810384b66540e24c1 Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts” Premieres On VEVO: The 10 Most Heartbreaking Moments

Beyonce‘s gut-wrenching “Pretty Hurts” video premiered on VEVO today (April 24) to coincide with the diva’s history-making Time cover. If you own Bey’s pioneering visual album, you already know how emotionally devastating the Melina Matsoukas-directed visual is. If you don’t, grab some tissues and prepare to get deep in your feelings.

The beauty pageant-themed mini-movie packs a hefty punch. Beyonce plays Miss 3rd Ward, a troubled contestant with an eating disorder and the simple desire to be happy. She gives a genuinely moving performance and the video delivers an important message about self-acceptance. Given that we posted the clip way back in December, I’ve pulled together the 10 most-heartbreaking moments to guide newcomers through the “Pretty Hurts” experience. Warning: there are spoilers ahead.

Here are the 10 most heartbreaking moments from the video:

6a0a0d6ae22b2aa1c9618393696b4ac1 Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts” Premieres On VEVO: The 10 Most Heartbreaking Moments

1. When Bey is criticized for being overweight

Prepare to hate the pageant’s coordinator (played with flair by albino model Shaun Ross). He has the nerve to suggest Bey is carrying too much weight, which sends her on a downward spiral.

2. When Miss 3rd Ward makes herself sick

Queen Bey tries to conform to the pageant world’s unrealistic standards of beauty by making herself sick in one hard-hitting scene. Earlier in the clip, we see another contestant literally eat cotton balls.

3. When someone tries to steal Miss 3rd Ward’s hairdryer

This bitch really tried it.

4. When the other girls don’t want to hang with Beyonce

Our heroine also suffers bullying from the contestants. Obviously, they were pressed and insecure because Bey looks so much better than them.

5. When Miss 3rd Ward breaks down

The competition gets too much for Queen Bey at one point and she starts to sob. Seeing Beyonce cry is sadder than the ending of The Notebook.

6. What is your aspiration in life?

Miss 3rd Ward’s answer to this question is the best moment of the entire video.

7. When the diva gets plastic surgery

At one point Bey turns to plastic surgery to fix imperfections that don’t exist. Amazingly, she still manages to look stylish while getting injections.

8. When Miss 3rd Ward comes second

The competition was obviously rigged. Beyonce was clearly the prettiest and most talented. I’m still mad.

9. When Miss 3rd Ward realizes she lost

That look of disappointment is crushing and destined to become a meme.

10. When Bey realizes that it’s all bullshit and smashes her trophies

This is actually a moment of empowerment but it’s sad that it took Miss 3rd Ward so long to realize she doesn’t need the approval of other people and is pretty much perfect as is. Watch the video in full below.

What’s the saddest moment of “Pretty Hurts”? Let us know in the comments below.

Ciara Shows Off Her Beautiful Baby Bump In ‘W’ Magazine, Talks New Music: 5 Pics

4d69908e7f34b870370410c9f027026c Ciara Shows Off Her Beautiful Baby Bump In ‘W’ Magazine, Talks New Music: 5 Pics

Ciara talks about the joys of pregnancy in the latest issue of W magazine and proudly shows off her beautiful baby bump in a stunning pictorial. The R&B diva displays her magnificent belly in a crop top in one fierce pose and reclines in the dirt in another striking image. Needless to say, she looks gorgeous in all of them.

While most of the interview is dedicated to CiCi’s impending motherhood (“it feels good to not have to wonder whether your abs are tight enough”), she does talk about new music. The “Body Party” singer claims an album is coming “really soon” and promises that the as-yet untitled opus will be her best yet. “I will go on record saying so.” 

Are you excited to hear new music from Ciara? Let us know in the comments below.

Iggy Azalea’s ‘The New Classic’ Is Heading For A Top Five Debut On The Billboard 200

37d6771da5f3b2afcef1f9628ee51f92 Iggy Azalea’s ‘The New Classic’ Is Heading For A Top Five Debut On The Billboard 200

Iggy Azalea‘s debut LP The New Classic drew mixed reviews from critics but fans have given the hip-hop/pop opus a resounding thumbs up. The Australian rap diva’s album is predicted to sell between 50,000 and 55,000 copies in its first week, which should be enough for a top five debut on the Billboard 200.

Impressively, the newcomer is expected to sell more than rap heavyweight Future. His sophomore set Honest will sell less than 50,000 copies if predictions are accurate. The New Classic‘s opening bow has, no doubt, been buoyed by the success of Charli XCX-assisted smash “Fancy”. It shoots into the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week and is shaping up to be a blockbuster hit.

Are you surprised that Iggy has prospered where Angel Haze and Azealia Banks failed? Have your say in the comments below.

Katy Perry’s “Birthday” Video: Watch Her Pull Several ‘Bad Grandpa’-esque Pranks

1c87a1085cd3fa6dc98f4451cc60e09f Katy Perry’s “Birthday” Video: Watch Her Pull Several ‘Bad Grandpa’ esque Pranks

From Katy Perry to Justin Timberlake (see: “Not A Bad Thing”), pop stars are demonstrating that the new trend in music videos in 2014 is to make one that’s essentially a non-music video. So here we have Perry’s eight-minute visual for Prism single “Birthday,” wherein we meet the five alter egos presented in the clip’s recent teaser and promo posters — that would be Goldie The Dancer, Ace The Animal Trainer, face-painting Mandee, Yosef Shulem and Kriss The Clown.

The video’s intro informs us that Katy “attended five birthday parties” last month, only “no one knew it was her.” What proceeds to happen, in outrageous documentary-style, is… oh, screw it — you all saw Bad Grandpa, right? No? Well, just watch above and then you’ll be all set.

Note: as mentioned above, the video is eight minutes. But, like with Lady Gaga‘s recent “G.U.Y.” spectacle, the latter portion of “Birthday” is spent on “film credits.” Chalk that up as another trend.
